Run JNLP Files on Ubuntu

sudo apt install icedtea-netx icedtea-plugin -y

icedtea-netx requires openjdk-8-jre and openjdk-8-jre-headless as dependencies so it’ll install JRE (Java Runtime Environment) for you as well if you don’t have that already.

  • JNLP is Java Network Launching Protocol
  • icdeatea-netx is Netx implementation of JNLP
  • icedtea-plugin is web browser plugin to execute Java applets
